    This book includes my favorite pieces by Puccini. The music is challenging to me, but not impossible. I am pleased with this purchase.

  • August 19, 2011 Puccini for Piano solo

    I have always wanted sheet music for these beautiful arias. Being unable to sing, I can make some attempt at this music through these piano pieces. They are written for a nice medium level of skill and are just what I have been looking for. I had not found this...

    music for the Puccini arias in any other books.

  • July 13, 2011 Nice selection but...

    I do not believe you can really transcribe this for piano exclusively and as a result it loses a great deal as a piano solo

  • July 12, 2011 Not for the piano !

    Puccini's music was not written for the piano and as a result sounds nothing really like it. It lacks the tone and fullness.
